macProVideo.com has released a 3-hour tutorial-video program called Logic 403: Mixing R&B. In this new addition to macProVideo.com's Level 4 "Producer's Series," you'll learn how to create space and depth in your mixes. Topics covered include mixing drums for R&B, creating space for the bass, working with vocals to make them cut through the mix, and more.
David Isaac (A.K.A. David Ward) has won 3 Grammy awards (and has been nominated for many more) for his R&B production skills. David has worked with such artists as Luther Vandross, R. Kelly, Marcus Miller, Anita Baker, Michael Jackson, and many other top recording stars. Drawing upon his long experience in the studio, David shows some serious tips and tricks about how R&B is mixed. He even drops some priceless gems of information about how things were done back in the Motown days - it's like getting a brief history lesson in funk and R&B from a person who was there in the thick of it.
This tutorial is filmed in Logic 8, but it focuses on mixing music, not on using Logic. The skills and knowledge explored in this tutorial can be applied to songs mixed on any digital audio workstation.
